Thirteen to Go! Senators 5, Tampa Bay 2

When it was all said and done, the whole game seemed almost anti-climactic. There is little wonder why the Tampa Bay players seem so down - the Senators hardly played their best today, and yet came away with the 5-2 victory in almost pedestrian fashion.
There isn't that much to say. In the first third of the game we basically sucked. We gave the puck away I don't know how many times, and couldn't win a face-off to save our lives. And yet we were only down 2-1.
In the end our big players, Havlat and Spezza made big plays, scoring and setting up some goals, and you could literally see the other side hoisting up the white flag.
It is difficult to imagine having too much difficulty putting this away come Saturday.
